* To answer Jim Steinman, Chicago likely gets all that meat from Texas, Kansas City and other places around it. Adidas of course has advertising. [[DontExplainTheJoke Not that anyone asked...]]

* To answer Jim Steinman, Chicago likely gets all that meat from Texas, Kansas City and other places around it. Most cattle drives historically ended in Chicago, which around the beginning of the 20th century was the second largest city in the US after New York and remained so until Los Angeles overtook it in the 1980s (hence its nickname "The Second City"), making it the logical place for these ranches to drive their cattle to. Adidas of course has advertising. [[DontExplainTheJoke Not that anyone asked...]]

* In ''Literature/TheAuthorities'', all the cool gear that the titular investigative team uses is made by [[GadgeteerGenius Albert]], who explains that he has been inspired to make gadgets the very first time he has ever seen a ''JamesBond'' film... and wanted to be Q. He even mocks being upset and quotes Desmon Llewelyn's character whenever Rutherford ends up accidentally damaging his gear. He is ecstatic when Rutherford finally realizes what he's doing and plays along.

* ''Film/{{Blade}}'' is explicitly shown stealing the watch off a vampire familiar's wrist in his first film, and points out that his operation doesn't finance itself. Presumably he just steals from vampires and their human familiars whenever possible.

Presumably he just steals from vampires and their human familiars whenever possible. Considering how much silver he goes through, it makes sense.

** A FamilyGuy bit where Peter is working as the store clerk at ACME when Wile E. comes in looking for a refund on a piece of hilariously backfiring equipment. They have a strict "no refund" policy, but offer him store credit instead, implying he just keeps cycling through their catalog in that way

* Miss Theatre/{{Macbeth}}, the SadistTeacher villain of ''INK: Invisible Network of Kids'', has a secret lab under the school and can invent all kinds of evil devices, yet when it comes to [[TyrantTakesTheHelm teaching schoolwork she's a total moron]].

* Many villains from TotallySpies seem to have no trouble at all sourcing hidden lairs, superweapons and deathtraps. A repeated example is ordinary students going for revenge and suddenly having access to advanced technology like forcefields and combat vehicles, in one example even building a huge replica of the university.

* [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Wile E. Coyote]] has [[AcmeProducts Acme, Inc]] to supply all his gadgets, but how does he ''pay for them''? Apply MST3KMantra here. ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'' proposes that he works for Acme. He still has to order the products through an Amazon.com-esque website, though, for some reason. In one cartoon it turns out the roadrunner is the one shipping them to him, purely for the lulz.\\ \\ According to Creator/JonStewart's ''Literature/EarthTheBook'', Acme stays in business, despite faulty merchandise, by providing "free shipping to remote desert locations."

* In the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' comics, {{Robin}} was able to get a [[CoolCar Batmobile]] shipped to San Francisco by [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l5sg9qiFAv1qbqx4xo1_500.jpg hiding it in the Batarang budget]]. (It's bigger than you'd think.) And he would've gotten away with it too if not for Kid Flash...

* Like the ''Film/BatmanBegins'' example, ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' justifies the presence of TheFalcon's winged exo-suit by stating that it was developed for the military by [[Film/IronMan Stark Industries]]. Sam's suit is stated to be the last one in existence, as the others were apparently destroyed during combat in [[TheWarOnTerror the Middle East]].
